The San Antonio Spurs look for a fourth straight victory. On the season, the Spurs are averaging 100.8 points on 45.5 percent shooting and are allowing 96.9 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 15.1 points and 7.4 rebounds while Tim Duncan is averaging 14.3 points and 9.6 rebounds. Tony Parker is grabbing 4.8 assists and Danny Green is shooting 42.5 percent from the field. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing just 41.3 percent shooting in their last five games and have allowed less than 100 points in eight of their last 11 games. The Spurs are playing just their second home game in over a month and are 21-7 SU in front of their home fans.
The Nuggets are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Spurs are 3-1-2 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Nuggets are 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings in San Antonio and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Spurs seem to slowly be getting back on track and are coming off a blowout victory over the Kings. I don't expect much from the Nuggets here, as this should be another ugly game. Lay the chalk but there are better options out there in all honesty.
